Spring Flowers

Crab Apple Tree

Lily of the Valley


Snowball Viburnum

I took my walk yesterday morning and the air was so filled with the fragrance of lilacs--I could barely take a step without sneezing.

The pollen counts have been very high.  My windows are all firmly closed.  I will have to take Arkansas Patti's recommendation and check out Quercetin.

Spring is worth it though!


  1. So sorry for your allergies. I have been sneezing like crazy, but I do not get sick. I can leave the windows open and just carry tissues everywhere. I love the smell of lilacs, but have had trouble growing them here.

  2. I don't believe I have ever smelled lilacs here in Hawaii or elsewhere. Must be nice. Good luck with the allergy medication!

  3. Love the pictures, but sorry for your allergies. So far, mine haven't been bad.

  4. I would love to plant lilacs for I really love the smell. Maybe I'd better see if they make me sneeze first. Hope the Quercetin works for you. Thanks for the shout out.

  5. How terrible to have to have allergies and to need to keep the windows closed. SO glad I don't have allergies. Thanks for the pretty pictures.

  6. Awww, that's a nuisance to have allergies. Hope the meds work for you.

    The pictures are gorgeous...and I'm still jealous!


I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
